I have this urge to blog. I don't like it and I don't know where it's coming from. But the weak girl that I am..I am caving in and blogging.
Mr. Riggles is gone for the next 5 days. I usually get really ornery and moody when he leaves..especially to him right before he goes. "NO! Don't leave me with all these children (I know I wanted all of them) alone for 5 days...Whaaaaa!" (No its not confessional today.) But this time I was actually looking forward to him being gone. There is so much more that seems to get done when he is not around...Hmmm I wonder if that has anything to do with the fact that when he is home all he does is ...............well never mind. Anyways...I'm planning to do a lot of the nitty gritty, deep cleaning of the house. So far I've piled up 3 loads of laundry on the coach and ran the dishwasher once. I know what you are thinking...I always pile the laundry on the couch with the intention of folding it right away but it sits there for days until I need a place to sit so I finally put them away. Well, this time I am piling on purpose. The one week where I have all this deep cleaning planned three days of that from 9:30 until 4:30 the water company scheduled maintenance on our street and is shutting our water off during those times. So the need to get whatever water cleaning done is very high today. I know, I have from 4:30 pm until the next morning with water but who in the hell wants to do chores when all the kids are home....Not Me!! That's called my "bonding time" with them. It includes: Homework, THEIR chores, reading, dinner, practice lessons, fighting, clawing, kicking, screaming, baths, hugs, kisses, yelling, prayers and bed. All of which requires my effort to escort and supervise them without any other distraction...Except the computer which I am on half that time. Who has time for laundry in all that???
